to the american people and to the united states senate through our wonderful chaplain, he basically said it all. we are still reeling from the senseless violence at the boston marathon yesterday. one thing, though, we are united and there's sympathy for the victims of this senseless attacks and the families who are suffering today. the victims. adding to the horror of this tragedy are the questions of who did this and why. the federal bureau of investigation, department of homeland security investigating this attack as aggressively as possible. as the president said last night, rest assured that the perpetrators will feel the full weight of justice for this terrible crime. on the anti-gun legislation before the senate, we're making good progress on the effort to schedule a series of votes to the amendments on the anti-gun legislation before the senate. i've had constructive conversations with my republican counterpart senator mcconnell. the american people deserve to know where we stand on these important antiviolence proposals. there are disagreements, mr. president, as to what we should do wi
of eight will presumably introduce a bill tomorrow in the united states senate and we don't know what confidence what is in that bill. but we do know that all of the initiatives that have come from the open border side of this argument. we know what democrats think. they do citizenship. they would mail it in if they could, because they see a significant political gain. on the republican side of the aisle. seems to me that they have suspended the full understanding of what goes on in history or what would take place. what are we trying to accomplish, mr. speaker? . . the president said, republicans will never win another national election unless you pass immigration reform. i don't know that we should be looking to the president for advice for republicans. the second part he said was, i'm trying to help you republicans. some of the people believed that, i do not. neither do thinking americans believe that the president of the united states who has been charged with attempting to, let me say, significantly weaken the republican party, would be seriously trying to improve the republican

sends poison to a united states senator is on some level a crazy person, so once you're crazy you've opened it up to any number of possibilities. >> the net widens once you've stipulated somebody is crazy could be crazy on any level for any reason. if it's a political statement or statement of any kind that's supposed to correspond with another statement with this loose n.r.a. tie, if you want to buy into that, but in any case, there's no specificity at all about this bombing. this is just an act of terrorism that appears random, nobody is taking credit for it. thus far, there are no clues. if it's intended to be a statement of some kind, the statement is. cenk: lost on us. >> exactly a blur. cenk: that's interesting because now everybody is speculating. again, i don't blame them, because everybody's curious about it. some i blame, glenn beck with his insane theory which of course it had to be the muslims because they kill in sents. he didn't say right wing, but when nationalists americans do it they target non-innocents? is that a defense of the right wing terrorism? where did yo

11th to assess threats against the united states to determine whether they're credible or not will be briefing members of the house intelligence committee tomorrow morning here in washington then we anticipate later today senate intelligence committee. late today the chairman, chair woman of the committee dianne feinstein coming out and describing what happened in boston as terrorism what. is typical in situations like this is that there are a series of briefings to the leaders to the various congressional committees. republican congressman mike mccall told fox the initial reporting he was receiving is that there was shrapnel ball bearings in this case in the devices there began to be more evidence they were designed to create maximum casualties as we saw today, greta. >> greta: there are lots of saudi nationals in this country. why is this one tapped into their interest? what about this one? >> i can't go beyond what i know from reporting but just the basics of the individual, 20, 21 years of age here just running down details to see if there is anything more to build
the united states, will be briefing members of congress tomorrow morning. first it will be the house intelligence committee and then we anticipate the senate intelligence committee in the afternoon. as you know late today the chair of that committee, democrat dianne feinstein has come out and called it an act of terrorism in boston. this is fluent at this point. i was told by a source familiar with the investigation that they believe between two and five unexploded devices have been discovered in connection to what happened to boston earlier today and that's pretty consistent also with what the "wall street journal" is reporting earlier this evening. we 130 to congressman mike mccall, who has been briefed on the investigation, and he said he was getting initial reporting that shrapnel had been identified in the devices, and in this case specifically ball bearings. this is more evidence to show that the devices were designed to create a maximum number of casualties and also injuries. the fbi is on the ground in boston. they are taking that marathon route, which has now become a crime
after 9/11 to assess and monitor the threats against the united states. we anticipate that will happen fairly early tomorrow morning here in washington, first with the house intelligence committee and after that the senate intelligence committee. as you know, late today the chairman of that committee, senator dianne feinstein, she believed boston was an act of terrorism. the third development comes from the head of the homeland security committee, republican congressman mike mccall, who has been briefed on the investigation. he told fox earlier today he had an initial reporting there was shrapnel, ball barges, incorporated into the devices. that's more evidence they were designed to cause mass casualties in boston today, greta. >> the saudi national that they were their attention on, you cut out on me a little bit in the beginning, is this the person who is burned in the hospital or is this somebody different? >> this was simply described to me as somebody of interest, not a suspect, and somebody who they were trying to run down the details of their student visa, which did appear to be
a magnet that's attracted people to come into the united states illegally in order to access the amnesty plan that they're devising in the senate and they're devising behind closed doors here in the house. now, amnesty, some of them have even tried to define amnesty. i've consistently defined it, mr. speaker. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. that's a pardon and a reward. that's what's in this document, about 1,500 pages that will emerge in a day or so. if we are to pardon and reward and instantly legalize everyone here in the united states, with the exception of those who committed a felony or three misdemeanors, what are we to expect? even with this bill, they would reach out and say to people if you have been deported come back to america and you can sign up under our plan, it is called the r.p.i. plan, it's a little bit bizarre so i didn't get the -- it's the registered provisional immigrant status plan. so this country would offer such a thing to people who have already been adjudicated and sent back to their ho
